What does a Maryland delegate do?
Types of Delegates
The forerunner of the Maryland General Assembly was the colonial institution, a legislature called the Assembly of Free Marylanders (and also the Maryland Council). Maryland’s founding charter created a state governed by the Earl Palatine, Lord Baltimore. As ruler, Lord Baltimore directly owned all lands granted in the charter and possessed absolute authority over his domain.
Beginning in 1867, the Assembly became increasingly unrepresentative. As Baltimore’s population increased, neither it nor other urban areas were granted additional seats. By 1918, the city’s population had increased by 175%, while the entire state gained only 46% without reallocation of political power. The city’s population increased by 175%, while the state as a whole gained only 46% without reallocation of political power.[4
